Engineering consulting firm LOC, part of AqualisBraemar LOC Group, is expanding its European footprint to Italy with a new office in Genoa.

This is AqualisBraemar LOC’s first office in Italy and builds on LOC’s established relationships with many Italian clients across energy and maritime industries.  The office provides clients with local engineering and consultancy, loss prevention and loss management services, and well as access to the 900 marine specialists employed within the Group.  The office staff are experienced in renewable energy projects and ready to assist with the growing offshore wind market in Italy and the Mediterranean. 

The new office will form a springboard for the wider AqualisBraemar LOC Group to expand its service offering to the Italian market and Mediterranean region. It provides extra opportunity for growth to its other group companies Longitude, specialising in vessel and EPCI engineering, Innosea, specialising in marine renewable systems design, OWC, specialising in offshore wind project management and AqualisBraemar Yacht Services.

The office is led by Roberto Longo (, a naval architect and marine operations engineer who has worked across the service lines within the Group for many years supported by specialist engineers and mariners.

David Wells, CEO AqualisBraemar LOC, said: “This is an important international expansion and the first as a newly merged group. We greatly look forward to working closely with our colleagues across the extended group, in developing our local presence as well as leveraging the wider AqualisBraemar LOC Group capability, to the benefit of local and regional maritime and offshore companies.”
